Bois d'Arc Lake: A Peek Through the Clouds

Located in Fannin County, near the city of Bonham, TX, Bois d’Arc Lake is the first new major reservoir in the state in nearly 30 years. Owned and operated by the North Texas Municipal Water District, this lake sets its sights on meeting the growing demand for water in a region of over 2 million north Texas residents. Equipped with a two-mile-long dam, multiple public boat ramps, a lake operations center, and more, this body of water will not only provide resources to the people of north Texas, but recreational aspects such as boating, fishing, and designated picnic areas. Bois d’Arc Lake began impounding water on April 14th, 2021, and continues to fill as it approaches its future conservation pool elevation of 534 ft.

Through the System: Where Does Our Water Come From

Story Map: The City of Siloam Springs 2040 Comprehensive Plan

The City of Siloam Springs, Arkansas has adopted the Our Vision, Our Future: 2040 Comprehensive Plan to help guide the City’s growth and future development over a 10-to-20-year period. Seeking an innovative way to present their 18-month journey from early planning through adoption, the City and authors created an ArcGIS StoryMap to complement the full Plan document. With an emphasis on community engagement, the story outlines the Plan’s structure, vision, and guiding principles in a simple, yet highly visual and interactive way. The StoryMap also utilizes a series of interactive maps to illustrate the planning area, existing and future land use, as well as transportation and mobility.

sUAV-Acquired Normalized Difference Vegetation Index Data to Create Observed Surface Classifications in a Coastal Habitat

For a project that required determining the amount of vegetation in a coastal area, DDG's survey team and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (sUAV) operators acquired visible spectrum and multispectral data. Multispectral data were processed into a Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) dataset. Converting the data type of the high resolution of the data allowed GIS analysts to develop ground-truthed classification compared to the aerial imagery captured in the same sUAV flights. Large scale map comparisons are provided to demonstrate how these classifications based on the NDVI data classifications compare to aerial imagery.

Innovative Choice

Six of our Garland Independent School District (GISD) schools are in the process of transitioning to new Innovative Schools of Choice. Campus administrators, district leaders and the school communities collaborated in developing themes for the new schools that would be attractive to neighborhood students. Whether the focus is on STEM or Collegiate curriculum students will be offered innovative, hands-on learning experiences and given opportunities to participate in enrichment programs that will help shape their future and give them a strong foundation to enter the modern 21st century workplace.
